2010 ST Crew 4WD. Bought it used on 1/2/12 with about 5K on the clock. I needed to replace my worn out Dakota in a hurry, got a hell of a deal. I won't be buying another truck any time soon, I don't have that kind of a budget, and I really like this pickup alot. That being said, since you asked there are two things I really don't like about it:

One is the 4.7 is anemic. My seat-of-the-pants-ometer has never been reliable, and it didn't register on the test drive. But it didn't take long after for me to realize it. I'm used to a lot more acceleration, and it's really dissatisfying in traffic. Of course on the rare occasion I tow, it's really sad up any kind of grade. =( I can live with it, but I don't like it.

The other is just annoying (and I think I may have arrived at a fix for it) - The truck did not have remote locks when I bought it, so I had a Mopar remote lock/remote start kit installed at the dealership. I don't have EVIC, and apparently there is NO WAY to disable the horn honk on remote start. (Yeah, some of you may not agree with my preference. So what?) I've had it to two different dealers, asked each of them to go through the menus TWICE, and they've both come up empty. So sometimes I don't use it just because of that. I can get into "why" in another thread, but right now I just want to answer the question, don't want to argue preferences. =)

Oh, I guess there's a third thing - I wish the 4WD selector was a shifter on the floor, so I know if it's in or out. I ran through a snowstorm on the freeway, kept it down to about 50MPH in 4WD. When I cleared the storm, I turned the knob, watched the 4WD light go out and TRUSTED it, and spent the next hour at 75MPH in 4WD. Fried the front diff. Had it rebuilt under warranty, and now whenever I shift from 4WD to 2WD, I stop, back up, test it by turning a tight circle. It's the only way I know for sure. Shit, might as well have to get out and unlock the hubs like the old days, huh? So yeah, if it were a shifter on the floor, that would be nice.

I also wish I had a hundred million dollars. =) Overall I like the truck a lot, and I'll keep it for a long time. =)

Gotta agree with the headrests & passenger seatbelt buckle, annoying as hell. Kinda regretting the dark charcoal interior, it shows everything. Had tan in my last truck and it looked cleaner longer.

You can bend the headrest posts forward to shove the headrest itself back. Very easy fix.

Just put the headrest post in a vise and push back on the headrest. Do that on both sides, both posts. Then reinstall in truck and enjoy no neck cramps.

And I won't have to listen to my wife complain anymore. Good thing she doesn't read this forum.

Well its hard to say.. I hate how to motor to lift the seat up broke, gas payments arent too great, the small 31in tires that are stock on a 2500 that already sits higher.

I guess the biggest thing I hate is that I dont have enough income to do all my mods and get a cummins all at once haha

2012 Hemi Express - my first post -

1 Getting only part throttle when stomped - Definitely my biggest complaint.
2 Can't shut off the traction control completely and why only 110mph? Huge fun killer.
3 Steering wheel blocks view of the speedo and tach. I have full view of the odo and gear select but I don't check them as often.
4 Sits way to high for a 2wd. Should be able to just walk over and sit in the driver's seat. It is a bitch to lift anything over the side of the bed.
5 Cant see the clock on the radio display. Even the channel number is larger than the time.
4 The cup holders are not adjustable like my 2nd gen Ram.
5 I hate getting oil on the steering rack dust boot.

Other than that, this vehicle is my dream come true. I love it and a huge improvement over all of my previous Rams. Superior performance at tollway speeds and heavy traffic, plus it can haul and tow!

My biggest complaint, is it makes me miss my Challenger. Now I find myself thinking about getting another Challenger, ain't getting rid of the Ram though.
